Forgot to include this in the original comment but you may want to consider Twinflame & Cackling Counterpart as well since they go infinite with Dualcaster Mage which you already included.

My dissapointing packs were all from modern masters (my last 7 packs bought were the following in this order).

Mizzium Mortars, Cruel Ultimatum, Cackling Counterpart, Broodmate Dragon, Evil Twin, Scavenging Ooze, and a Seance...

Stolen Identity, Sphinx's Revelation, Cackling Counterpart, Batterskull and Tempt with Reflections would all be solid, especially the first two. I would cut All Is Dust as I don't know why you would play it in the first place since you have so many colored permanents. Clone Legion, and Followed Footsteps would also be sweet. Personally I would cut cards like Grasp of Fate amd Counterspell and use creatures that you want to make tokens of anyways to do those sorts of things, like Angel of Serenity and Draining Whelk. Geist-Honored Monk would be sweet too.

Adorned Pouncer probably isn't good enough for EDH; I would also cut Enlightened Tutor, Secure the Wastes, and White Sun's Zenith. Play cards that actually do things like the ones I mentioned above instead of ones that late game make you a ton of tokens. Temmet is different from any other token general in that he wants you to have 1 big token rather that a massive token army. To that end, play Medomai the Ageless since this is a combat-focused Azorius deck and Blade of Selves for obvious reasons, but also for Anointed Procession shenanigans. I would also cut Sword of Fire and Ice, Phyrexian Processor, and Quietus Spike to make room for more creatures and tokenization cards. The sword is great and all, but just because you can play it in every deck doesn't mean you should, and there's plenty of card draw available to this deck without it. The processor is just off-flavor for me and there's not a lot of obvious ways to gain back the life, and Quietus Spike will certainly kill people quickly, and make them want to kill you quickly too, all of them. So again, I would suggest playing more token-producing value cards in those slots. Lightning Greaves is actually sub-optimal in this deck as the shroud will prevent you from targeting the equipped creature with Temmet's ability.

Cackling Counterpart might be good in this to make bigger tokens.

This looks good so far.

Unesh enables:

  • Sphinxes matter

  • Graveyard matters

  • Flashback

  • Number of cards in hand

Unesh is enabled by:

  • Sphinx ETB

  • Ramp, so you can play him early!

Given the above, cards you might consider cutting include:

  • Archaeomancer

  • Junk Diver

  • Mnemonic Wall

  • Riptide Chronologist

  • Riptide Shapeshifter

  • Prism Ring

  • Spellbook

  • Tormod's Crypt

  • Compelling Argument

  • Divination

  • Drafna's Restoration

  • Hidden Strings

  • Into the Void

  • Sleep

  • Reconstruction

  • Send to Sleep

  • Tragic Lesson

  • Refocus

  • Faces of the Past

  • Jace's Sanctum

  • Quiet Contemplation

  • Sphinx's Tutelage

  • Most of the counter magic. I think most of the time you'd rather play a Sphinx than hold up mana

Worst sphinxes:

  • Ominous Sphinx

  • Turtleshell Changeling

  • Jwar Isle Avenger

  • Horizon Scholar

  • Belltower Sphinx

  • Argent Sphinx

Cards you should definitely play:

There are multiple mono-blue flashback cards that mill. If you used Unesh to enable graveyard matters, these would fit right in. However relying too much on the graveyard makes the deck easy to hate out.

I think what you want most is a way to recur Sphinxes from the graveyard.

I'm trying to optimize my list and would like to bounce some ideas of you all and see if you have any opinons as well.

Sudden Demise. Is this card better than Fall of the Titans or Comet Storm? I think i like the instant speed options of the other two.

is Arcane Denial worth it's price$ tag? or should i just run Deprive or Delay for hard counters or even go for some soft counters like Mana Leak, Miscalculation or Logic Knot

Whir of Invention is only hitting mana rocks, Tormod's Crypt, Elixir of Immortality and Aetherflux Reservoir. I'm not really a storm deck so really breaking the reservoir is kinda hard but it's a good polictical tool i think (hope) lol.

Rise from the Tides puts a target on my head if i don't flash it out with Quicken, still worth it? or should i run somthing like Diluvian Primordial?

Would adding Cackling Counterpart for a copy of Young Pyromancer or Docent of Perfection be too cute?

should i take out a one mana cantrip like Mental Note for Impulse? Impulse is a stronger effect but costs more making it harder to combine with another spell to draw a card with jori

Retraced Image is cool cause you can reveal a land a put it into play, making it a ramp spell kinda like a mana rock. so with that in mind is it better than a actual mana rock? like Star Compass or Fellwar Stone?

Jilt or Into the Roil? if i'm running primarily against other budget decks i think jilt is better because there will be more X/2's running around, agaisnt the general field though drawing extra cards can't be too bad

Psychic Spiral I think could be hillarious, maybe i run that as a secondary(teriary) wincon instead of Aetherflux Reservoir

If anyone has more cool ideas I'm definitly open to exploring new areas, thanks for any input!!!

Thank you! Her some more considerations:

We want "go big" and "copy/populate" the good stuff.- Delving a little deeper into artifacts allows some good lines of play. For example, Wurmcoil Engine, Myr Battlesphere can go out of hand quickly. Each copy of Wurmcoil Engine threatens the board and makes you super resilient against boardwipes with the "little" Wurm-tokens coming into play after the Engine died. It synergises well with Anointed Procession as it doubles the number of wurm tokens. Same goes with Myr Battlesphere. Both can flood the board without forcing "go wide" and provides good beater (especially the token-copy of Wurmcoil Engine and Battlesphere.Further, Torrential Gearhulk is a proper sized creature, allowing to flashback interaction or things like Fated Infatuation, Cackling Counterpart and especially Saheeli's Artistry to get even more copies of value creatures onto the battlefield. Lines like Torrential Gearhulk -> flashback [Saheeli'S Artistry] -> copy Wurmcoil -> copy Wurmcoil again are the dream. Or make two copies of the Gearhulk with the Artistry and flashback two other instants.Speaking of [Saheeli's Artistry], it synergizes very good with Phyrexian Metamorph. This clones is an Artifact in addition to its types and allows to get copied twice with Artistry.

  • Faerie Artisans create constantly new artifact creature tokens. Synergizes well with Artistry, targets to populate, fun card!

  • Supplant Form Instant speed tempo play and token generation, can be flashed back with Gearhulk

  • Reef Worm With every copy, this card escalates quickly and makes you incredibly resistant against boardwipes. Synergizes with every tokengenerator and copy-enabler Mimic Vat, Soul Foundry. First, the opponents laugh. But over the long run, they will cry!

  • Organizing every clone-token can be a mess and hard to track. If you want something to laugh about, get the Pokmon card "Ditto" from the "EX Delta Species" Edition. There are multiple different Ditto cards in which Ditto imitates other pokemon but still has Dittos derpy face expression! Sleeve it in a perfect fit sleeve and put a white sticker over the textbox to have a field to write on with a removable marker to write down which clone it is :D

Thats all :-)
